I recently completed the technical edits for the new book CISSP For Dummies, 4th edition. It’s a great book (not because of my contribution!) that I wish I would’ve had when I was studying for my CISSP test back in 2001. If you’re prepping for the CISSP exam or just want to brush up on the fundamental concepts of information security, this book is a must-have. Just keep in mind what I’ve always said, certifications are only part of the information security career equation.
Interesting side note: Years ago, around the time I first wrote Hacking For Dummies, Wiley approached me to write CISSP For Dummies. I had too much going on at the time so I declined the offer. Now that I see what this book has evolved into, I’m glad I didn’t agree to write it! I believe Peter Gregory and Larry Miller did it more justice than I ever could have. Check it out.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
